Merritt Centennials are pleased to announce the commitment of
20-year-old Regan Soquila to the University of Alabama in Huntsville of
the NCAA for September of 2013.
In 172 regular season games
with the Centennials, Soquila finishes his BCHL career with 61 goals and
115 assists and 71 penalty minutes. He also had 6 goals and 11 assists
in 18 career BCHL plyaoff games with Merritt.
"We are very happy
for Regan and his commitment to the University of Alabama Huntsville
this fall," said Cents Head Coach and GM Luke Pierce. "Regan has been
one of the top players in the BCHL over the past couple of years and is
extremely deserving of this opportunity," "During the course of his
three years in Merritt, Regan was an outstanding contributor on and off
the ice and was an instrumental part of reviving this franchise.
Regan was eligible to return this season, we were aware of his desire
to attend university this fall and have been working with him to make
that a reality. His talent will be greatly missed here in Merritt, but
we are excited for him and this opportunity to continue his career at
the Division I level. Along with former teammates Brent Fletcher and
Chad Brears, Regan will certainly help to make the Chargers a tough team
to play in the coming years."
